  • "Have to wait longer than expected when going to Bondi, but its okay!" See review

This experience is one memorable one for me and husband. Regardless of the weather we enjoyed the tour. Listening to the history and seeing it at the time was so beautiful.

Slow Sydney bus tour
Keithy
, Mar 2020
Very slow, I know Sydney is a big city but there are so many traffic lights the bus gets stopped at and some of its actual stops it takes ages to get passengers on and off and when you are exposed on the upper deck in 36 degrees plus temperatures it becomes very unpleasant. One bus we were on vibrated terribly when stopped and on one the downstairs air conditioning wasn’t working so had to change busses. Some pretty naff music between commentary’s.but at least we seen some of the sights of Sydney on the whole probably worth it
